mSpot Offering Free Music Streaming and 2GB of Free Storage
NEW YORK — A new music service launching Monday lets you listen to your music collection from any computer or Android phone over the Web.
MSpot's service stores your music on its computers and lets you access it remotely through a Web browser. It's a concept known as "cloud computing," and it's also popular with music subscription services such as Rhapsody and Thumbplay.
MSpot is free for 2 gigabytes of music, or about 1,600 songs, and charges $3 to $14 for up to 100 gigabytes extra storage.
It detects cellular network conditions and adapts playback so that your tunes don't get interrupted because of spotty coverage. An "airplane mode" allows you to play songs you've preselected, without Internet access.
Currently available for Windows PCs, Mac PCs, and Android phones.
